Manage the response data and bind it to the respective page component, then select the required key and UI component.

GET API response

  • Local Storage - Store in browser cache
  • Array - Get data in Array.
  • View binding to List only.

POST API response

  • LocalStorage - Store the data in your app.
  • View binding - Bind the API data to the page components
  • Parameterized Route - Add parameters to your routes

Step 3

Manage the action you want to perform on the success or error of your API call. In drop box, you will see the options which we have already covered like Navigation, Show Alert, & API integration.

Show Alert dialog, Toast, Snackbar

After the API call is successful, select which page to navigate to next.

While setting up navigation action, you can also pass the data from the current page to the page you are navigating to via API response, Navigation argument, & constant files.

  • API response: If your current page has API integrated which is receiving data in response that you can share that data to the page you're navigating to via API response.

  • Navigation argument: If the current page already has Navigation argument set up. Then you can pass that same data to the page you're navigating to.

  • Constant: If you have added constant files, then you can pass the constant data to the page you are navigating to.

On the success or error of the API call, you can choose to do another API call. You will again have to repeat all the 3 steps.

However, after this API call you won't be able to do another API call. The API nesting limit is only 2.
